Washington: An interesting new study on the prominence of curse words on microblogging site Twitter has found that one in every 13 tweets contains an unprintable word.

The study by Wright State University found that Twitter users swear mostly on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

According to Washington Post, it was found that men swear more than women and f-words are plain Janes in front of Twitter`s curse word of choice.
The researchers found that f-bomb was used more than twice as frequently as the next nearest four-letter word of choice.

Co.Exist opined that this type of research has broad applications in mental health and online harassment policy, particularly in schools.
